When a tooth suffers from decay or other damage, it is important to restore the tooth in order to prevent the damage from becoming more serious. One of the restorations our dentist may recommend is called a dental crown. A crown, sometimes called a cap, is a tooth-shaped restoration that is designed to entirely encase the damaged tooth. By covering the tooth, starting at the gums, the dental crown returns the tooth to its ideal shape, structure, and size. We can also restore the tooth’s original appearance and color by using a porcelain crown that is matched to your natural tooth color. If you prefer, we provide dental crowns made from gold or porcelain fused to metal as well.
